Accident Injury
Florida’s 14-Day Rule

In the state of Florida, drivers are required to have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. This type of insurance covers injuries sustained in a car accident, regardless of who is at fault. In accordance with Florida law, individuals who have been involved in a car accident must seek medical attention within 14 days of the incident in order to be eligible for PIP coverage. This is known as the 14-day rule.

It is important to note that seeking medical attention immediately after a car accident is crucial for the well-being of the individual. Prompt medical attention can help to reduce the severity of injuries and prevent further complications. In the event of a car accident, it is recommended to consult with a medical professional as soon as possible.

If an individual has been deemed to have an “emergency medical condition,” they may be eligible for the full amount of PIP coverage, up to a minimum of $10,000. This coverage will typically pay for 80% of qualifying losses related to the emergency medical condition. It is important to consult with an attorney for specific legal advice regarding PIP coverage and the 14-day rule.
